BBS
An acronym for Bulletin Board System. Usually it is a home computer that has a modem attached and is waiting for calls from your computer. It can, however, also refer to commercial services (such as CompuServe and the Source) and any other computers that you can call via telephone lines. BBS's almost always allow you to leave messages for other users. Many BBS's have programs that you can download and use on your computer. BBS can also be expanded simply to `bulletin board'.
